Visitors have left!

It was nice to have some visitors today,  and last night.  We went to see Travis Tritt,  in concert,  an American country singer.  I think he has more of the style of Waylon Jennings,  more of a rockabilly type country.  He played an acoustic concert.  It was the first time,  that I have seen 2600 people at an acoustic playing.

It was just himself,  with his guitar.  And,  a stage man changing his guitars, depending on the sound of chords he wanted for the song.  He must have played for 2 hours straight,  and picked fast through his Trouble song.  He picked fast,  through a few songs.  To be quite honest,  it was very good.  Only,  after an hour,  it wears off on you.  I mean,  just the picking of the guitar,  for 2 hours straight can wear you out.  He did not take any breaks,  but just to tell an occasional story about his family life in Georgia,  which was quite interesting.  He had a country singer from Nova Scotia open for him,  who was quite a good impersonator of country greats like Hank Snow, Hank Senior Williams, Johnny Cash, and Willie Nelson.  He sang these great legends songs while changing his voice.  He does have a great voice without changing it to boot.  I must reinforce,  that it was a very good concert,  but the acoustic marathon can wear you down.  The father in law was with us,  and unfortunately,  I was driving,  so I could not get into the beer to fully absorb and appreciate the sound waves...

Now,  back to my book.  I do not see any price changes as of yet.  The E book should come down to 3.98 at any time.  I am surprised that in this day an age,  it takes long to set the price down.  It could be on the book sellers end,  I am not sure where the delay is.  My ten fans are steaming mad! I politely explain back that life is getting like having to do business with the government. Now, just think,  China is going to send a man to the moon in 2020.  And,  I cannot get my E book price reduced yet.  It is hard to believe the Chinese can do these huge tasks so fast,  and I cannot reduce my E book price yet due to administrative wrangles.  I am thinking of supporting the Chinese space program,  by putting my book cover on the side of the rockets fuselage.  Till then...

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
